My child is not challenged at all, and is often overlooked due to other students who need more attention. There are not enough paraprofessionals on staff to help remedy this. The teachers are nice, and genuinely care for the students, but seem overworked. The principal gives a vibe of insincerity, and seems like she's trying to hide something. If you want communication outside of conferences, be prepared to push and beg for it. The only thing I like about this school is the amazing PTA, who work tirelessly to provide activities and learning opportunities for the students.
Fantastic school! the teachers are very nice and they love it when you visit them. the teachers don't forget you and they can remember your name for a long time. Sometimes i would walk in the hall way and when i got around my 3rd grade teacher's room. she would stop me to ask if i was having a nice day and other things. in 5th she still remembered me. i'm pretty sure that she remembers me still. now i am in 7th grade and go to carl ben eielson middle school, another greadt school!
Lincoln is fantastic. My child transferred in 3rd grade from another south Fargo school, and she loved the staff, the atmosphere, the diversity, etc. the PTA is outstanding and very involved. I would highly recommend this school.
Lincoln Elementary is one of the best staffed schools in Fargo. The teachers are dedicated, friendly and professional. We moved to have our children attend this school. The diversity in the school is a positive influence on our children. Manix Zepeda is an outstanding administrator, who is caring, friendly and professional. He puts the needs and welfare of all students first.
A good school with a new principal who is very focused on educating kids and not outside activities that add no value to the classroom or academic outcomes. Smaller class sizes and a very active PTA provide the needed enrichment activitiess for kids and families. The school has a large staff of special needs, ESL and other special teachers to help the many kids who need extra assistance to learn and achieve. Good art and music program too.
The teachers and staff at Lincoln are wonderful. There is a variety of students, and so the school faces challenges, however the school is staffed with award winning support staff that are able to give attention to those in need, so the classroom teachers can concentrate on the classroom. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the community of teachers, they are connected and organized, they support one another from grade to grade. I love the 4/5 grade looping classrooms. My children have thrived at Lincoln. The principal, Mr. K, is friendly and involved. Don't be swayed by the low score.Lincoln is a great school.
